King seems to have a secret sauce and more than a few tricks when it comes to dirt. I am an AKA guy, and I've used nearly all of their tires at his track, with the exception of Wishbones. "City Blocks" have been a "go-to" tire when it's loose and "Grid Irons" when it grooves up, but you are best off bringing a variety and gauging it that day.

How late is practice gonna last on Friday for the Midwest? Will there be any practice Saturday morning? Tyler has football practice until 5 on that Friday so, we wouldn't make it until about 9:30 that night. If there is a couple hours Saturday morning that would be great.

King will be there at the crack of dawn as usual... get there early and you will get plenty of practice time in.

BTW, I went to King's RC Raceway yesterday and had an absolute blast driving the new layout! The feedback was universal... likely the best track we've ever raced.

Check it out!

I hope that helped... that said, for more specific tire data you may want to talk to Quad Racer from this thread. He won the Nitro Buggy and came second in E-Buggy on Saturday. And, he is sponsored by Jconcepts.

Default Cincinnati Dirt Mafia strikes again!

King's RC Raceway is proud of our core group of racer's... aka, The Cincinnati Dirt Mafia... they are well-known as some of the fastest RC driver's in the Midwest. With it being an off-weekend at King's RC, the Mafia traveled to other events at other locations, and the results speak for themselves:

At TCRC's "Brawl for it All" event in Lavalette, WV the Dirt Mafia put up the following results:

E-Buggy: Steve King - 1st Place, Mike Harris - 2nd Place (TQ), Rob Ward - 3rd Place, Mike Deitrich - 4th Place.

Nitro Buggy: Ralph "Krumbelievable" Krum - 1st Place.

Nitro Truggy: Ron Halcomb - 2nd Place, Roland Compton - 4th Place.


At the Ohio Electric Summer Series at Blue Groove Raceway in Urbana, OH the Dirt Mafia had a single representative.

E-Buggy: Dave Taylor - 2nd Place.

Big Congrats to all of our racer's!!

Default MIDWEST OUTDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS UPDATE!

ATTENTION: The MIDWEST OUTDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS is less than two weeks away! This weekend's PREVIEW race at King's RC Raceway is the best chance to get some track time on the layout before the race... especially if you won't be able make it down for practice the night before the race.

Good question, Randy... we have a big, bad-a** generator at the track and several outlets. Just bring a long extension cord as the turnout is looking to be pretty good and pit area will get pretty spread out... but we have plenty of room. You will also want a table/workbench of some kind, of course. And, you may want to bring an EZ-Up as an option, but there are some nice shade trees that run along the backside of the driver's stand.

Sorry, we missed this one. I believe the lights will on until 10 or 11pm on Friday. Will follow up this post if that changes.
